Public housing is an inextricable part of our national identity – it is hard to imagine Singapore without first thinking of HDB flats, with their winding corridors, laundry hanging off bamboo poles, and the void decks. The HDB scholarship has given me the opportunity to be involved in shaping housing policies to meet the changing expectations that residents have of the towns they live in. Through my internship experience, I have realised that HDB's goals are not limited to just providing affordable housing, but also creating and maintaining communities around our homes.
